|I M P O R T A N T! Please make sure you acquaint yourself with the all information below BEFORE submitting any artwork___*
NEW: If you are submitting a TBF application entry, please submit to OC References, thank you!
Irkcellent is first and foremost an ‘art gallery’, not a ’submit-everything-I-draw gallery’. We want to be able to display your most excellent artwork that best represents you as an artist. This implies we will have a bit of a quality standard here and will not automatically accept all artwork. Do not be upset or discouraged if your images are declined though! In addition, we will only accept two deviations per week. Any attempts to submit more than two will mean an automatic rejection of the deviation.
Please submit your artwork to the correct folder! Upon entering each folder there will be a description at the top describing the contents, as well as what belongs within that particular folder. If you are still unsure what folder your artwork belongs to, or think there is a category not covered by Irkcellent’s existing folders, simply drop a comment on the home page and an admin will intend to you as soon as possible.
The Irkcellent gallery does not prohibit incomplete works such as sketches, WIPs, or line art, or images with white or transparent backgrounds. If you wish to submit a piece with little to no background, it must either have a gradient or small design behind the character.
** While sketch work and line art fall into the incomplete section of our rules, we may be less strict with this rule if it is refined and professional in appearance. Also, some images such as animations or pixel art, depending on quality and length, may be accepted.
Irkcellent does not accept screenshots, heavily referenced art, traced art, or images created with bases. We will not support art theft of any kind. This is not a flexible rule. If the admin suspect your art is heavily referenced, traced, or stolen it will automatically rejected. However, you will be informed of the how and why of this decision.
Humans are not accepted in this group. There are a couple exceptions such as 'human disguises’ and canon characters. [Dib, Gaz, Professor Membrane, so on and so forth.]
Do not submit fetish or explicitly sexual themed art work. The Mature folder in Irkcellent’s gallery is for all images containing PG-13 content, whether it be excessive gore and violence, suggestive material, or tastefully done nudity. While Irkcellent wants your artwork, we also want to keep our gallery clean given that a majority of the fandom are, in fact, children or young adults.
The Cellent's Critique folder is unlimited in the amount of artwork you may submit. We only ask that you use common sense with this folder and not overload our admins with pieces to write reviews for. We would like to create a good, helpful responses for the artwork submitted to this folder. If you are curious to learn more on how Irkcellent’s critique system works, proceed to this link here.
RESPECT YOUR FELLOW ARTISTS! This is a very important rule, we will NOT tolerate any bullying, flaming, harassing, or stealing in this group. This should already be widely accepted logic, but we feel we should state it once more so it is clear. Failure to respect this can lead to immediate removal from the group entirely. Any drama that occurs will not be tolerated and for some who simply want to start drama for their own amusement(i.e. trolling), these comments will be hidden and you will be removed from the group. Further provoking will then lead to being banned from the group. If one does have a problem with another member and feel they need to notify the admin for any reason(i.e. "I have a problem with this person, they may try to____" ) don't be afraid to. One of our primary goals here at Irkcellent is to create a friendly and supportive community. We want to ensure everyone has a pleasant experience over all.
AND THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF ALL! Have an ‘irkcellent' time! Irkcellent was created to be a fun, easy-going organization to promote growth in artists, old and new, and draw together a fandom often divided. We do apologize if some of the rules are strict, but we thought it was necessary to establish a strong foundation in order to create a healthy and striving environment.
Thank you so much for taking your time reading. If you have any further questions or concerns, simply leave us a comment! And now, by all means, go share some art!
